Fussy and Fancy Challenge 6, Green!

Happy Friday everyone! This week’s challenge over a Fussy and Fancy is GREEN, since it’s March and St. Patrick’s day is near, not sure exactly when though… LOL! This card reminds me of my birthstone, Emerald. Like an Emerald Fairy! I made this card actually for my cousin, who has been a little down lately, she loves the color green and her hair is probably the same length as this whimsical girl.

This stamp is from Sweet Pea Stamps, they are our sponsor for this weeks challenge and the owner was kind enough to give us all a stamp to create for the challenge. Thank you very much Sweet Pea Stamps!!

This is the first time trying this border punch technique, my friend April discovered a tutorial on it and shared it with me.
